Super Single Vineyards focus on the production of handcrafted wines from specially selected single vineyards throughout the Western Cape and the newly allocated Sutherland-Karoo region. Our pursuit for the finest fruit is never at an end. Canettevallei Wine and Lavender Farm, dating back to 1682, is an old family farm that lies tucked away in the quiet valley of Stellenboschkloof on the “Ou Kaapse Hardepad”. Surrounded by natural beauty, it is here where the De Waal family find their inspiration from and live out their creativity to the full…The home of Pella and Mount Sutherland Wines. Daniël’s love for the soil and nature is expressed in his wines; led him to the decision to create his own wines, wines that would reflect this passion. An old rickety outbuilding had to be renovated as this was to become a small boutique winery and tasting room. Meticulous care was taken to preserve its character and express the family’s roots and style. Daniël is in continual search for the best vines and perfect terroir which Canettevallei would not necessarily provide. He has discovered some super single vineyards, hidden throughout the full length of the Western Capes’ ‘vineyard belt’. These vineyards provide the fruit for Pella Coastal Wines. He has also gone to great lengths to establish the first true cool-continental vineyard of South Africa on the farm Kanolfontein in the Sutherland-Karoo region, the origin of the Mount Sutherland wines; solidifying him as a true vineyard-pioneer.
The Mount Sutherland Pinot Noir beguiles the senses with wonderful nuances of ripe cherries, raspberry and cranberry in combination with subtle undertones of aromatic liquorice, subtle hints of wild mushrooms and fragrant cigar box. On the palate unfolds a very intense flavor profile of the already sniffed flavors with soft and delicate tannins. It has an endless soft finish.
